Celebrate a birthday or special day with these super-yummy Funfetti Pancakes! Light, fluffy, and loaded with sprinkles, these breakfast goodies will make your morning extra special!
Hi everyone! It’s Erin from Delightful E Made! I’m thrilled to be here, and am so happy to be a new member of the Lil’ Luna team. I’m looking forward to sharing some of my delicious creations with you, and hope you’ll enjoy them as much as my family and I have over the years!
Today, I’m sharing a version of a recipe that I’ve been making for my family on special mornings – Funfetti Pancakes! My family adores pancakes, and these fun, colorful cakes are especially perfect for a birthday morning or any other morning you feel like celebrating!
My little boy Harrison will be turning 7 in just a few days, and I can’t wait to surprise him with a big stack first thing in the morning. They’re super easy to make, using just a few simple ingredients that you likely already have in your pantry and fridge. The batter comes together quickly, and by stirring in rainbow sprinkles at the end, you’ll create some seriously pretty breakfast treats!
I’ve also made these pancakes for the first day of summer vacation, first day of school, Father’s Day, and many snow day mornings. (We’ve had several already this winter!) They seem to immediately brighten the morning and put a smile on your face – I firmly believe sprinkles can have that effect! 😉
I love to top the pancakes with whipped cream, and more sprinkles (of course!), but you can also top your cakes with flavored syrups, regular maple syrup, or even frosting! Serve with a side of bacon or sausage and have some scrambled eggs on the side, and you’ll have the most amazing breakfast ever!!
Here’s how these delicious Funfetti Pancakes come together:
- 2¼ c. all purpose flour
- ¼ c. sugar
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 2 c. milk
- ⅓ c. vegetable oil
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- ¼ c. rainbow sprinkles, plus more for topping
- Whipped cream
- In a medium mixing bowl, mix the dry ingredients - flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix with a whisk until completely combined. To the dry ingredients, add the milk, oil, egg and vanilla, and whisk together until smooth. Lastly, stir in the vanilla and sprinkles.
- On a hot, greased griddle, ladle on the batter into 4" pancakes. Once the cakes begin to bubble, its time to flip. Pancakes are done once each side is a golden brown. Enjoy the pancakes right away while hot. Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. You can also wrap these in plastic wrap, freeze and reheat.
This recipe makes about 12-14, 4″ sized pancakes. These are great to wrap up, freeze and then reheat on busy mornings when you don’t have time to cook up a batch.
The next time you want to celebrate a special day, or when someone in your family is celebrating a birthday, mix up these easy Funfetti Pancakes – they’re sure to bring smiles to everyone’s face!
